NGOs Slam Intimidation at Limpopo Schools

NASGB and SECTION27 tell school governing bodies that it is their right to govern schools and speak out against problems they face

The National Association of School Governing Bodies (NASGB) and rights organisation, SECTION27, have told school governing bodies it is their right to govern schools and speak out against problems they face.

NASGB secretary-general, Matakanye Matakanye, has been quoted as saying that, "Some school governing bodies could not come to the workshop because they were told by principals, 'if you speak out about problems you will not be recognised as school governing bodies'."

Matakanye, states that it is their right to govern schools under the South African Schools Act, and expose problems such as severely overcrowded classrooms, staff shortages, and poor infrastructure at schools.
